ALEC, Norquist and the NRA - Mmm, mmm, mmm

Media Matters had a short blurb today that had three interesting things in it.
I suggest you read the whole thing  >>>HERE<<< - it will only take a minute or two.
But I want to give you a snip that I found very interesting for three reasons – all three bolded.

NRA Reportedly Seething Over Elimination Of ALEC Task Force

Erickson reported:

At Grover Norquist's Wednesday meeting a discussion about the ongoing assault against ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, came up. Multiple sources (there are hundreds in the room) tell me that the NRA representative took issue with ALEC getting rid of his public safety section. That section has drafted a model "stand your ground" law, which Florida passed.

The NRA representative claimed that if ALEC was going to run away from the fight on these public safety issues, ALEC might just run away from other issues too, e.g. immigration.

Erickson further reported that an ALEC representative present at the meeting complained that the NRA had refused to help his organization push back on attacks they were receiving.
